[siren] >> as the u.s. marks 1 million deaths from covid, a debate is intensifying over the effectiveness of restrictions that were put in place to keep all americans, young and old, safe. of the 1 million dead, three quarters were age 65 and older according to the cdc. and more than one quarter were age 85 and older this week the "new york times" reported that for those under age 25, risks were higher from dying in a traffic accident than from
3:32 pm
covid. commentator clay travis posted on twitter remember all those sports media who told you athletes would die if sports came back and it was too dangerous for you kids to play little pleaing? shameful. the fight over which is more likely dying from a car accident or covid goes back to the start of the virus. here is president trump in march of 2020. >> you look at automobile accidents, which are far greater than any numbers we're talking about, that doesn't mean we are going to tell everybody no more driving of cars. >> dr. anthony fauci at the time on the president's coronavirus task force disagreed. >> to compare traffic accidents with -- i mean that's totally way out. >> what was way out for dr. fauci in 2020 is now fact for those under age 25 today. for whom car accidents are a leading killer. >> when we think about what young people die of. it is accident, suicide, homicide. so, these are deaths that are
3:33 pm
largely preventable. but they are not due to chronic illness. >> deaths from car accidents have actually increased during the pandemic despite fewer people going out and fewer miles being driven. one theory as to why risk-taking. during the pandemic increased. bret? >> bret: steve, thank you. let's bring in fox news senior political analyst brit hume. i hear this story and i just think i have heard this before. >> boy, have we ever. i mean, from the beginning, epidemiologists and other leading experts said that young people, particularly young children were very nearly invulnerable to this disease and yet we closed down the schools and colleges for the longest time we closed down businesses regardless of whether the people working in those businesses were young or old. all of this in the name of trying to prevent the spread of this disease and, yet, look at how many people died from it anyway. there was the total failure all along the line to look carefully at the side effects of the
3:34 pm
measures that were being taken to fight the disease. and the collateral damage was terrible. i mean, we know about an educational terms. we know about it in medical terms because people couldn't get appointments that couldn't do regular healthcare, operations were postponed. cancer screenings that weren't done. the list goes on and on and the damage is only now being toted up. people at last are beginning to see that we did the wrong thing there. >> bret: it is amaizing to see. the stats being talked about openly. they were not for a very long time. the cdc acknowledging where this was a public policy miss in large part. but also politically. here is president biden talking about at that point florida governor ron desantis and what he was doing about covid in florida. take a listen. >> i say to these governors, please help. if you are aren't going to help, at least get out of the way. use your power to save lives.
3:35 pm
>> bret: this was about kids in masks. this was about the danger to kids. there are people who say we didn't know as much back then. but there were a lot of people who knew a lot about stats at the beginning. and, yet, it was a political, you know, weapon at times. >> brit: it started out in some respects, bret, the reaction to covid is how people reacted to donald trump. if they didn't like trump, they were all for the measures to fight covid and to blame him for not doing more and to blame others like governor desantis in florida who regulated with a much lighter hand than other governors did and ended up with no worse results and he didn't shut down the schools and he didn't shut down his state nearly to the extent that others did. and he came out in about the same place or by some measures each better. covid alarmists turned out to have the wrong prescription. these viruses do spread. the phrase i heard again and again during this period is virus going to virus. and it did regardless of the
3:36 pm
measures we took. and those measures did uncall do you believe damage. >> bret: quickly, brit, i would be remiss if i didn't ask you. you are in pennsylvania. you have this big primary come up tomorrow. we had one of the senate candidates on the show earlier. a big deal there in that state. >> yeah it is, bret. it's a very big deal because of the worry among republicans this season is that they have this tremendous opportunity to regain control not just of the house but also the senate and other governorships. governorship is up this time around and trump has come out endorsement over the weekend that was done apparently without consulting the republican leaders. they are not happy about the guy he endorsed. they think he is too far out. that he couldn't win in the fall and hand the state house governor's chair back -- well to the democrats to keep it and on the senate side he has endorsed dr. oz who may well win and the fear is that he can't be elected in the fall.
3:37 pm
wanted the trump heavy hand here will end up hurting the party instead of bringing it closer to victory. the interesting thing about it the agenda nearly all of the republicans have up here in both races is very trumpy. so, you know, you are going to get the trump agenda no matter how vote for, the question whether they will vote for somebody who can actually win. >> bret: brit, as always thank you. live to kyiv with the story of called the war on ukraine a clear cut case of good and evil and felt compelled to fight. ♪ at, finding perfect isn't rocket science. kitchen? sorted. hot tub, why not? and of course, puppy-friendly. we don't like to say perfect, but it's pretty perfect.
